Holey Grail coming to Main Street soon
By Dolores Quintana
A Hawaiian donut shop that uses taro root dough is moving into the former Ben & Jerry’s space on Main Street in Santa Monica.
Holey Grail donuts, a specialty donut maker that uses taro root flour to make their donuts, will soon open their store in Santa Monica as reported by Toddrickallen.com. The chain comes from Hawaii and not only uses taro root, a superfood, but also fries the donuts in coconut oil.
The shop will be taking the old Ben & Jerry’s space over at 2441 Main Street. The donuts are served in compostable black boxes, even for just one. As of Feb. 19, the store is selling their donuts out of their food truck that is parked in front of the new location, according to their Instagram posts from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., check Instagram for days when the truck is there. Patrons can also order online to pick up donuts at their pop up location in Culver City at Platform, 8806 Washington Boulevard, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. daily.
Flavors include the North Shore, a tangelo, turmeric and black pepper donut, Island Chocolate, that uses 70% single estate Lydgate Farms chocolate and The Frankenreiter, a truffled honey, truffled salt donut with, you guessed it, shaved black truffle that is a collaboration with musician Donavon Frankenreiter.
Holey Grail also has draft coffee, draft lattes, matcha and chai drinks available.
